petallides watching traders' reaction from the floor of the nyse, jeff flock watching action on the trading pits of the cme and we have you covered with all-star fed panel. first we begin with nicole petallides on the floor of the nyse with stocks at the top of the hour. the fed now up 6. nicole: we are up six points, we are for six day is a row for the dow jones industrial. some would say people were waiting on the fed, talk about more easing and more stimulus and traders, they were asking about extending the programs, we will see about that. as far as major market averages the dow is just above the unchanged line like the s&p 500 and the ticket in nasdaq pulling back and you see the markets are very tepid and hovering right near zero and waiting for each headline. dennis: thank you, critics are calling it q e forever. the expected in moments to announce a new stimulus. cheryl: a current bond buying program, operation twist is scheduled to end. let's bring in our all-star panel. let's start with gerald 0 driscoll who is with the cato institute. you say we need to end the bond buying progra
the audience. jeff? >> there was a question that was asked -- what is being done to have this run later, 21 hours? i have seen numerous accidents as a nighttime commuter. i do not have a anyone frombart fart here. i did try. there had been an article on the examiner about a few of those. i reached out to the director. it was not a bad thing, necessarily. he was super interested. the most promising thing i have heard today is but we heard from supervisor wiener. in the sense that we need more, we need them in the city at 2:00 a.m.. from the entertainment commission side and a lot -- mayor's office, if i could grab his attention, this is a longstanding issue that is very important. >> of the next question is written in red ink, on pink paper. to the police, what is the official stand, or your opinion, on the expansion of last fall to 4:00 a.m. ? >> i will feel that one. it is not a case by case basis. we have to take into consideration, if you're going to have last call before 4:00 in the morning, the impact it will have on community and traffic, the impact it will have on the people outside
-year-old cape cod. >> reporter: jeff davis road out >> reporter: pretty lucky for a 45, 50-year-old cape cod. >> reporter: jeff davis road out sandy in his home on new jersey's long beach island. your house is in pretty good shape. you fared well. >> we were lucky, we were lucky. >> reporter: his house was saved by this wall of sand, part of a $16.8 million army corps of engineers project completed six months before sandy. >> they basically brought the waves to a stand still at this point. >> reporter: stew farrell is a coastal geologist who's examining how sand barriers stop rising water pushed ashore by the storm. >> in places where the projects had not been constructed, the damage was extensive and in some cases catastrophic. >> reporter: since 1986, the federal government helped new jersey pay $700 million to build sand walls as high as 22 feet. but some critics, including steve ellis of taxpayers for common sense, call it a beach bailout. >> what we need do is actually reorient the funding so that the majority of the cost is picked up by the localities rather than the feder
the sequest tration cuts should they kick. in despite jeff sessions's effort not on the table in an effort to negotiate closing the closing gap between revenue and spending. the u.s. department of agriculture that administers the program says the increase in snap participation in the 2008 to 2010 period of economic decline including the recent recession was consistent with the increase in the previous period of economic decline. but as the unemployment rate dropped the number of those participating in snap continues to rise. skeptics point to one key factor. >> a lot of people don't realize one of the provisions in the 2009 economic stimulus bill was to essentially evas rate the work requirement -- eviscerate the work requirements for food stamp. today in most state there is to requirement whatsoever to work in exchange for benefits. >> the usda maintains that the snap program has a workbe requirement for able-body adults who don't have dependents and it's up to the state to enforce specific guidelines. chris? >> chris: thank you. things were calmer today in the nation's newest right to wo
know it is cheap. let's go to jeff in new jersey. >> jim, mark west energy is down nearly 5% this past week. should i add and worry about their chronic secondary offer? >> i liked nwe and then it sprung up and this is no kmp. let's go to josh in massachusetts. >> big beantown booyah. >> i'm going to give you stop confusing me with tom brady booyah. >> happy hanukkah and merry christmas to you. >> thank you. >> my company is cirrus logic. i love them and i know they are in bed with apple. and how do you feel? >> it has had such a big move. if i want to own an apple play, i'm going to own apple. why don't we go to mark in wisconsin? >> jim, thank you for taking my call. your thoughts on parker drilling. >> no no no no no we don't need parker drilling. let it come up and ka ching. i like to go with best of breed, which is slob. how about jeff in illinois? >> happy holidays jim. thank you for taking my call. i have been whistling through the wheat field in the agriculture sector. >> those are both good companies. right now i prefer monsanto a little bit. but those are biotech companies tha
for these leaders. and then also one last question. do we have -- okay, they're getting a microphone now, jeff. >>> thank you, admiral. the last issue that you all just talked about, the sustainability issue, this is the one that concerns me because a lot of people in local government, i'm sure, have had the same experience we have in oakland. many great programs start off very well, then people leave. budgets get cut. there's no sustainability. and they go off into the horizon. so, you four enlightened commanders, you understand this. but the challenges ahead, sequestration, perhaps, your budgets, change of command, retirement -- how do you four feel about being able to sustain this program and the concept that has been started here in the last three years at san francisco fleet week? >> i'll take that, jeff. one of the things that we have done is made sure that we derive value and benefit from the programs that we participate in. if we were showing up to be a training aid for somebody else, that would certainly die out. but we have mapped out objectives for ourselves which really benefit us
the state police are on the scene. and look at the row of ambulances lined up. >> again, jeff, i think the good news we have to report right now, even though two people have been shot, a gunman has been neutralized and one person is confirmed killed. we have rows and rows of ambulances parked outside of clackamas town center. right now it looks like they're not being used. so we're thankful for that, that we don't have stretchers of people being loaded out of that mall right now. we don't know if there are any more victims. we do know that people are still being escorted out of the mall right now as we speak because after these shots were fired they went into nooks and crannies, wherever they could find, and they basically hid and locked themselves in, locked themselves down. now the s.w.a.t. teams are going through the mall and clearing each little pocket of people out of the mall making sure the scene is safe and telling people to keep your head down and women and children first. can you imagine hearing that when you're walking out of a mall. >> if you do know the mall, we showed a p
sense while still maintaining public safety. >> hello, folks. my name is jeff, founder of public works. i love good food, music and art, creativity in general. i tried to reflect that in the venue. by booking manager had an opportunity in lake tahoe. i love san francisco and the diversity here. i find that when you operate a venue and it is diverse and has a variety of things going on, there is a certain openness. when it is open to all the folks in the city, problems of violence and things like that do not tend to come along. thank you. >> thank you. i love my panel. in the producer of the largest fetish event next year. thank you, from the. [laughter] i wanted to start with you, jeffrey. this is a big thing of mine. everyone says that they love good food and music. i love a good cocktail. obviously, that is part and parcel of the issue that came up around all ages, 21 and over. other than looking great entertainment on the stage, how do you plan to make sure the or patrons have a great experience? aside from what they are seeing, maybe? >> it is artistic. right off the bat, when you
see. >> and share it with our audience. >> like this video shot by our friend jeff down in australia. you see a truck coming up the road. you see dust flying. >> what's different about this giant mack truck? >> what's he, what's he, what's he pulling there? >> he's pulling not one, not two, not three, but four trailers. this is basically what -- is called a road train. >> i've seen these before, too. it's such a long overland haul in australia that to make it efficient, they've got to carry as much as they possibly can. >> it's scary to watch it go by. it just, it's like a caterpillar or centipede coming over these hills. >> i hope the route is straight because turning this thing, imagine trying to make like a three-point turn? you'd be all over the place. >> are you more respected in the trucker world if you can walk into a place and say -- i hauled four trailers. >> i think so. i think you're measured by, you know, the length of your trailer. >> size does matter in this profession. >>> plastic cups and a bunch of ping-pong balls. >> beer pong for nerds. >>> see how this one blows u
of inflation could be closer than you think, and jeff says this is the time to be overweight equity. great you have to both with us. greg, let me ask you first of all. how much do we care about what ben bernanke said today in terms of what we do with our money? >> well, i mean, i don't think that this makes big changes in terms of how you govern your portfolio necessarily, about there are marginal impacts. i think this is going to bring down long-term interest rates a little bit more which will facilitate home purchases. it will facilitate refinancing or re-refinancing for people who have previously done so, and i think this pumps a little bit more air into that equity rally, so, you know, clearly people long in equities i think stand to benefit provided we avert the fiscal cliff. >> and, in fact, jeff, you're overweight equities as we said. why? >> first of all, plett me back up and say i think this announcement from the fed was really not a difference of degree but a difference of kind. as long as you have the fed standing by their policy of quantitative easing, you have the central banks ar
more workers. let's talk about this manpower survey with ceo jeff joerres who is joining us again. >> great to be here. >> we just had a ceo on very concerned about job hiring for next year because of the fiscal cliff and all the costs associated with, that and yet your numbers here seem to suggest that at least statistically we're not seeing that much an impact, or am i misreading this here? >> no, you're not. when you look at it it's actually slightly better than what we saw in the fourth quarter and a lot better than the first quarter of this year. >> how do you explain that then? >> what you're really seeing is that right now, as companies are looking at their demand, they are saying, you know what, you've got enough demand that i'll have to continue to creep up. this is not a robust hiring survey but a good hiring survey. i think the real crux is that we are forgetting that at any moment a ceo can push a button and say we're not going to hire anymore because they are used to being agile. you look at fiscal cliff and what's going on in europe. they are standing on guard ready
of the top names in music. as jeff glor reports, the cause hits home for many of them. >> i've never seen anything remotely close to what hurricane sandy was. >> reporter: sandy was a worth-case scenario storm. millions lost power, thousands lost homes, and over 130 people lost their lives. new jersey new york and connecticut were the hardest hit. they're also home to some of the biggest names in music. >> i was here during the storm. it was scary. >> to witness my city and the tri-state area really going through something where nobody could control it. >> this was just complete and entire buildings washed away into the sea. >> reporter: 121212, the concert for sandy relief at madison square garden is being called one of the biggest music events of all time. >> we called bruce springsteen and paul mccartney and they said yes immediately. >> reporter: the last time producers managed to bring this many big names together, it was after 9/11. ♪ i've seen the lights go out on broadway ♪ >> reporter: 121212 has already raise third degree $2 million in sponsorship b

consideration, the main way to change the rules comes from oregon democrat jeff merkley. if you want to filibuster, you can't say 60 vote rule, too bad. can't vote on that. you actually have to go down and hold the floor and talk and talk and talk and talk all night and for days and for weeks. you need to work for it. there is merit to this idea. it would make filibusters harder on the minority. it would make them more transparent to the public. it would make them less likely on popular bills, but it wouldn't reverse the transformation of the senate into a place where 60 votes required to get anything done. so there is a proposal that personally i like better. frankly, it's kind of an ingenious proposal. it recognizes that there is general value in protecting the minority's right to be heard. but in order to protect that right, you don't need to make every vote a 60-vote supermajority. this proposal would in one fell swoop end the 60-vote senate, but it would preserve the interests of lengthy debate. the idea doesn't come from outside group or some young radical. it comes from a long
fiscal cliff with jeff blake from arizona. try running four.ning a restaurant is hard, fortunately we've got ink. it gives us 5x the rewards on our internet, phone charges and cable, plus at office supply stores. rewards we put right back into our business. this is the only thing we've ever wanted to do and ink helps us do it. make your mark with ink from chase. >>> welcome back to the "squawk on the street." i'm sharon epperson with the latest report from the energy department on oil supplies. could oil supplies in the past week, they rose by 843,000 barrels, 843,000 barrels, that was an increase where many analysts had been anticipating a decline. but it was not as big a build as what the american petroleum institute reported last evening. the gasoline supply numbers, definitely one that surprised many traders. an increase of 5 million barrels in the past week. gasoline supplies rose by 5 million barrels in the past week. and supplies rose by 3 million barrels in the past week. we are looking at prices coming off of their highs of the session. a big build across the board. that is l
enough to do this. only jeff lacker from richmond fed gave incentive this time around. there is a bit of confusion as i head this statement. there's two different things going on. one is asset purchases. other is funds rate target. there are two different litness tests for now long they go on. federal reserve says it'll keep going if the labor market doesn't show signs of improvement. we have to ask bernanke how well this works together adds a whole, to really explain what is going on here. >> what is the implication steve, of that economic trigger on the fed's funds rate. for investors holding fixed income assets. as you move down towards the 6.5% magic point. what happens in the markets? >> well, i mean, you a sense e sensitively, the market will anticipate either an ending of of the program as we near it or even potential asset sales if we do get a rise in inflation towards 2.5%. i would like to point out, tyler, that 6.5% average number is exactly the number that was given to us by our -- in our cnbc survey yesterday. they hadn't talked about it at 7% but 48 respondent's came in
this program. here is what senator jeff sessions told me. >> it's a guaranteed thing. it's an entitlement program. that means if you meet the income qualifications, the government must give you the money. whether the government has any money to give you or not. if they don't they have to borrow it. that's what we're doing. >> reporter: by the way the food stamp program is exempt from sequestration. even if we go over the fiscal cliff those benefits will still be paid out even if lawmakers don't reach a deal. senator sessions did try to pass something in the senate that would have put food stamps on the table for the fiscal cliff negotiations and failed in the senate. jenna: let me ask you that is it part of the fiscal cliff negotiations or are food stamps in their own column right now? >> reporter: he tried. it is considered an entitlement program so it has to be funded. he did try to get the specific measure passed in the senate and it failed. jenna: any response from the administration on this? >> reporter: we reached out to the white house on this and want to give them opportunity to e

trillion in debt. jeff, so what does it take to get someone like alicia hired? >> i think that the economic underpinnings underpinnings require some security and some long-term stability. it is not enough for congress to come along and say, okay, we have decided on this deal for 2013. i think the political class is loving this attention. we're all sitting here on pins and needles and bated breath waiting for they on high to decide our futures. it would be really nice if we could get back to the point where we say here is the rates, here is the appreciation, here is the withholding, and let the rest of us go do what we're supposed to do, which is help alicea get a job. >> students protest for healthy school lunches. they actually get what they asked explains how next.

, jeff sessions, staff calculation of data from the congressional budget office and the office of management and budget, the president's plan suggests that roughly 75% of $1.2 trillion in new revenue be directed to new spending instead of deficit reduction. the fiscal cliff must be averted to protect our economy for future generations. yesterday, house speaker john boehner asked the president to identify specific cuts he's willing to make for a balanced approach. i hope the president will take immediate action so progress can be made for a bipartisan solution. in conclusion, god bless our troops and we will never forget september 11 and the global war on terrorism. the speaker pro tempore: the time of the gentleman has expired. the chair recognizes the gentleman from new york. >> i ask unanimous consent to address the house for one minute. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman is recognized. mr. mig-ins: mr. speaker, there are many lessons to be learned in the wake of the hurricane that devastated parts of new york and new jersey. one of which is the importance of electronic m
